Wearable Regulation for Children with Autism

Wearable Regulation for Children with Autism

As you might already know reading a post about Autism, one of the most obvious tendencies of children with Autism is to repeat certain actions. These can range from bobbing the head, rocking the body, scratching the flesh, and banging the hand. That’s a small list. What this product tries to do is to take that tendency and aim it at this product. It’s soft, stretchy, and can be tugged, rubbed, squeezed, bitten, etc.. Will it work?

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

25 Homeopathic Years of Brita

Designer Julien Hadley had the task of branding a gesture marking 25 years of Brita water filters. Hadley chose the phrase “We’ve Got a Plan” to note Brita’s aim to promote a more sustainable approach to consumerism and how people use products. Environmental responsibility! Along with that is this lovely plant plan: “My-oan” – a platform that enables users to grow homeopathic plants on their own, in their own home.

Nike LunarGlide+ Review

Nike LunarGlide+ Review

Nike is renowned the world over for their running shoes so when the LunarGlide+ racked up award after award for product design, I got interested. I’ve never been a runner so this was a golden opportunity to get my feet wet. Thanks so much to Kasey and Demetria for hooking up the sneaks. Hit the jump for my review.

Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Harley Davidson Circa 2020

Somebody pass me a helmut and a time travel ship because if this is what Harley bikes look like in 10 years, I’m so there. Designer Miguel Cotto pays homage to the big road hogs by keeping the large 883cc engine, complete with high revs and roars. The similarities end there. The design is almost tron-like in execution. Check out the wheel hubs. They’re actually giant bearings. I do see glimpses of Harley DNA in the center chassis but seriously, can you image any road warriors riding this?

Little Night Lamp For Sderot

Little Night Lamp For Sderot

It’s not often I see product design mixed with politics because it’s tricky and definitely an invitation to royally f*ck up. However if your ideas are shaped by a politically active environment, there’s a real possibility for brilliance such as the Little Night Lamp For Sderot. The lamp is created from a bomb shelter light switch as a gesture to the citizens of Sderot, Israel who have been living under siege for years.

Posture Perfect with the iTilta Superchair

Posture Perfect with the iTilta Superchair

Chair on wheels, wheelchair that is. The iTilta’s designed by Gu JiaWei to further push the wheelchair into the regular lifestyle of those who have to use it. It is the goal, isn’t it, after all, to make these tools (wheelchairs, artificial arms, legs) as much a part of the body as the limbs that are naturally attached? I think so!

2B2 Changes Faucet History

2B2 Changes Faucet History

Faucets, the untapped design challenge. Is that what you say when you see a wild faucet? This is a wild faucet, one of the wilder ones I’ve seen. It’s whipped up by designer Andrey Bondarenko to effectively change the evolved history of the sink itself. Instead of reflecting the shape and sensibilities of a waterfall or a geyser, as it is with a “normal” tap, this faucet takes on the form of the water as it’s fallen in the round sink. Wild, yes?

KeyPing Grandma Satisfied

KeyPing Grandma Satisfied

The project you are about to behold is called “KeyPing Touch” and it’s made for people who wish to keep an eye on everyone all at once without being overly intrusive or big-brotherish. But I tell you what. There’s no real way to keep an eye on everyone all at once without being totally intrusive… so says I and mine. For all you other people out there, the ones who aren’t bothered by their friend/relative/mate’s unwillingness or inability to “cut the umbilical” -this is a fun little gadget for you!

Many Hues Of Songs

Many Hues Of Songs

What is life without color and what is design without innovation? Addressing the two is the Hélio DAB Radio. The design uses colorful solar Grätzel panels that are transparent and add a bit of psychedelic creativity to the room. The Grätzel solar panels get their color from vegetal ink, upping the green quotient. The LED panel and Speakers compliment the radio and are in sync with the form. It’s the sort of thing we would love to bring home!

Coat Rack of Many Colors

Coat Rack of Many Colors

Let’s pretend for a moment that you live in the same state I do. Not the same state of mind, but the same physical location in the United States of America. I live in Minnesota. It is here on this ring of Earth that we have four very distinct seasons. For at least 2 of these seasons, we’ve got no use for a coat rack.* What does the rack look like then when you have no need for it?

Kitchen Module - Fully Equipped

Kitchen Module – Fully Equipped

Welcome to tomorrow’s kitchen. Designed by Eliza Shubert for the new generation. First, and maybe most importantly to aesthetically-concious designers such as yourselves, it transforms. When it’s not in use, it’s out of the way, it’s nice. Looks like some regularly lovely decor. Touch-screen technology, cooking board, work board, sink, water delivery, air extraction hood, and fabulous lights (for the ability to see.)

Curvy Bike

Curvy Bike

How would you re-define a bike? Tinker with it to get greater speed and performance? The curvy Hidemax Cycle is born out of the notion to enhance speed, functionality, looks, comfort, resistance and durability. In short it tries to address all major issues that bog a bicycle designer. Here’s what it’s got: adjustable height achieved by loosening the grip apparatus around the steering wheel. Instead of an up/down axis, the saddle of the bike can be adjusted to left/right through its 2 different joint points.
